Hey, Hi, Hello!

GIS analyst with 7 years experience in the industry


A brief history to how I got where I am

  • 1988-2007

    Where it all began

    Spending my blunder years with my bestie since the womb! My older twin (by 90 seconds) and I born in the longhorn state until we were about 8. We moved throughout the west coast until graduating in 2007.

  • 2007-2009

    The gap year(s)

    I decided to take 7 months off after graduating. After all, I worked really hard to graduate with my AA along with my High School Diploma. I was gone 2 years.

  • 2009-2011

    The College Years

    After studying under a black and white photographer in Germany, I decided to pursuit photojournalism as a career. I met a guy in the first few days at Rochester Institute of Tech and my life would never be the same.

  • 2011-2017

    Photographer turned Cartographer

    One door closes and another one opens. My photo business flopped. I turned to a temp night job at Pictometry processing aerial imagery. There, I learned how to align pixels to the earth. It ruled. I was hooked... or tie pointed in this case.

    Got Hitched!

    GIS Analyst

    I'll admit that I'm GIS geek but there's no shame in saying how I love to tell stories through data. We moved to New York, NY were I took a huge leap in my GIS career in commercial real estate.

Basic Programming

Every GIS professional will encounter the need to automate. Learning the fundamentals of scripting is a challenge but worth it.


Bringing flare to online maps. Sometimes just getting involved in websites such as GITHub or w3schools will take that story map or custom app to the next level.

Project and Data Management

Compiling, vetting and verifying data for complex spatial analysis can often mean longer deadlines. Project Management skills help with communication, deadlines and overall work balance in day to day GIS life.


Any GIS role will require some selling points. Often others aren't sure what they are looking for or what they want. Half of any GIS role is to get to the root of someone's needs.

Graphic Design

Data doesn't have to look boring. Taking time to find the right symbology or proper point dispersal could really make a huge difference in gathering an audience.

My work

I have worked on dozens of projects so I have picked only the latest for you.

Behind geography and data, a map can be more powerful when married with a narrative and pleasing design. Condensing complex analytics in an informative, easy-to-understand layout can be crucial for a map's success.

I am constantly pushing my skills and creativity to displaying data as more than just facts. Learning basic CSS, HTML and Javascript has proven that subtle design will draw the user back into the map. Engaging an audience to have a peaked interest, interact, relate and most importantly, to draw curiosity to the story behind a data.

Sometimes the greatest challenge is to create a template tying the design back to the map.


A subtle way of displaying data.

Most data is best displayed through a simple thematic map.

Where do people spend most of their time during the day? Where do people live? How much money are they spending on food?

Using colors properly to engage audiences answering the questions being asked.

I like to think of thematics as the cover to a book or the label on the wine.

Data and a Map

Give me the facts!

Data doesn't always need to be displayed through the bird's eye view.

Sometimes icons can help tell the story.

Stories Have History

Maps do too...

Landscapes can change and frequently in New York, NY.

Maps can also display how the landscape has changed overtime. Using ESRI widget's 'Timeline' and 'Slide' has made displaying the changes of our surroudings easily.


Projecting surroundings through barriers and lines. A delightful way of saying, "This is the end".

Location, Location, Location

Knowing the Market

Density is a powerful way to strategize the next location. Seeing the market through density can help determine if the next location is cannabalisim or prime real estate.

How close am I to my existing store in SoHo? How saturated is the market with our peer brands? Or is putting a store right in the heart of the saturated market going to define how our business will succeed.

Radius Rings

Surround yourself with radius rings, walk-times and drive-times.

Stylized and Desgined

Organizing map elements around the visual center can help achieve a balanced design. The most important information on the map should have more visual impact than the background.
